As much as we tend to rant about the NCAA in these parts, you can’t lay all the blame for what sucks about collegiate athletics on its doorstep. I mean, there’s a 94-page report it issued on a number of serious infractions committed over an eight-year period at Syracuse…
In its report, the NCAA placed Syracuse on probation for five years for breaking with the “most fundamental core values of the NCAA.” Athletic department officials interfered with academics, making sure star players stayed eligible, the report said.
… concerning a program that’s been severely penalized before, whose coach harbored and defended a pedophile on his staff, and what’s the school’s response?
He’s getting three more years to coach there. I guess that’s what being “the embodiment of Orange pride” gets you.
If there’s a message there beyond just win, baby, I’m not hearing it. Maybe somebody from North Carolina can explain it to me.
